Not interested in dating anyone
I can barely connect with a lot of my own feelings about her death, and thinking about sharing those feelings with a stranger is complicated.She was sick for 10 years, during which I also had a hard time saying "yes" to relationships.But the reality is that we hold more power over our romantic destiny than we often think.To a great degree, we create the world we live in, although we are rarely conscious of this process.He also had some family and mental health matters to sort out.Manhattanite said he was 88% clear on the fact that he really liked my friend, but that he didn't want a relationship. Staying in touch seemed like an OK idea at the time.However, I do think many people assume they'll be in a certain "place" in life before committing to someone. A., will I really be up for a serious relationship in the next few months? Recently, a male friend shared with me that he had met a very great and important woman in his early 20s, but that he was too intent on figuring out dating and having fun to commit to her.She's married now, and he told me it really was based on his timing, and that things would look a lot different if he had met her now.
I'll never quite understand why our excellent sexual chemistry combined with friendship closeness was never enough for him to want to exclusively date me.She attempted to dismiss him as a sociopathic f*ckboy, but he was actually a kind, emotionally intelligent, non-socio dude who wanted to be single. Two years after they met, he would finally be ready for a relationship, and would let her know that he met someone at school.They both saw other people, but continued to see each other, even meeting up when in each others' cities when Manhattanite was no longer a Manhattanite. My friend would be sent into deep sadness and regret over not telling him how she felt a literal year prior. Somehow, writing about my friend feels less terrifying.When it comes to dating and relationships, it’s hard not to feel that you are a victim.After all, others can be cruel; you will get hurt, and no, it isn’t always your fault.
